Albert W. Chow, M.D., and the staff at his San Francisco Surgery Center are dedicated to providing patients with the highest quality treatment. The safest, most comfortable medical care available. Our commitment to you begins when you make your initial call for information and will continue throughout the duration of your treatment under the care of our cosmetic surgeon and staff.
Dr. Chow has a skilled, experienced staff that works as a team to make your plastic surgery experience as satisfying and successful as possible. Our front office staff, Laura or Georgina, are able to answer any questions you might have about any treatments and procedures when you call for a consultation. When you arrive, you will be asked to provide general information about your health including any labs, x-rays and primary care physician's notes for any pre-existing conditions. This information will be useful to evaluate your health, allowing Dr. Chow to customize your treatment around your specific needs and goals.
Following this, you will meet with Dr. Chow in a private consultation room to discuss your goals and discuss your options. He will then conduct an initial examination and take photographs of the areas to be treated. Computer imaging will allow you to preview what might realistically be expected from the surgery, which will help you make a more informed decision before proceeding with any procedure. With your goals in mind, recommendations and expectations are discussed in complete detail, including what to do in preparation for the surgery and what to expect in your recovery.
Following your consultation with Dr. Chow, you will meet, our Operating Room Coordinator, Marcia who will assist you in scheduling your surgery on a day that best fits your schedule. She will go over pre-operative and post-operative instructions with you, as well as the costs involved in your surgery. During this time, she will also discuss any paperwork, consent forms, prescriptions, and other relevant documents.
On the day of your surgery, you will be greeted by a pair of friendly faces who will help to calm your nerves and prepare you for surgery. You will then meet one of our four board certified anesthesiologists, who average 15 years of professional experience. You will also meet Larissa, Dr. Chow's operating room registered nurse. All of the members of Dr. Chow's surgical team are committed to making your plastic surgery experience as safe and comfortable as possible.
Our commitment to you does not end once your surgery is complete. We are dedicated to helping you through the post-operative period as well.
